Hi recently started getting a problem with the watch not pinging the iPhone, which is a little frustrating, as its my most used feature on the watch itself.

I got it going again after restarting the phone and watch, but it started doing it again. I'm making sure that the phone isn't on mute or on do not disturb. The speaker on the phone is working fine, as in able to ping when a text message comes in.

Looking for possible reasons? I'm pretty familiar with the iOS, and stuck with what it could be.

Both OS's are on the latest version. The iPhone is a new iPhone 6S.

My wife's iPhone 6S and watch is not having the same issue.. Wondering if anyone else has experienced this and found out what the cause was ?
